I saw this show when I was a junior in high school, and it blew me AWAY. Away so far that I no longer knew I had ears. It was so fucking loud!! I had only heard the material from Vs. and Signals, Calls and Marches, but it all sounded so good...it was one of the best shows I saw in high school. During "Trem Two," I recall feeling liquids oozing around my eardrums. It would have been a cool way to go deaf.

This is amazing. I got a chance to see MOB on this tour, and they blew me away. I'm from Boston and I discovered them just after they had broken up in '83. That was frustrating. This is a pretty good sounding tape and the show is representative of the one I saw in 04 and also of the tapes existing from the early 80's, the first time around. I hope some of those surface.
I know it's been said already, but MOB pre-date pretty much ALL bands that sound even remotely like them. These guys are borrowed from left and right. REM called them an influence way back when that band was starting out, they even covered Revolver early on.
MOB's only full length album VS. came out in 1982 soon before they broke up. It takes a few listens before you realize you will never escape this music again, it is permanently stuck in your brain. I'm REALLY glad they started up again, even if they don't have Martin Swope this time (the original tape looper). Here's hoping more shows make it to the archive. Check this out, it's worth your while.
4 stars only because it's not a soundboard!

I used to go see these guys in Boston in places like the Rat. It's good to hear them again. This concert really captures what they're all about. Great sound and even better music. THANKS.

Subject: Nice sound....
did not make their tour thru the South a few years ago I was planning on th Atlanta show - but this is a great listen - nice to hear TWIRFMR - I almost fell over when I heard Moby play it 4 years ago and i don't think anyone in the crowd new whre this tune came from...

Subject: some Burma misc
With regard to the bands listed as points of reference for Burma in another of the reviews here - Burma predates every one of them. Think contemporaries of Minutemen, rather than fIREHOSE Interesting fact is that they were likely the first rock band to use real time sampling, live. Their soundman did it from the board, and I think this was mid 80s. More in Azerad's excellent, Our Band Could be Your Life. Very stoked for this addition to the archive - thanks. Also - apologies for my disregarding the intended purpose of these reviews, but I couldn't resist the chance to evangelize for this historically overlooked band.

Excellent sound quality; almost on par with the iTunes-only Snapshot EP. Cory, you got some excellent recordings; I salute you.

"New song" is surely "2wice," which will appear with the (astonishing) "Spider's Web" on the new MoB album, "The Obliterati," dropping May 23 courtesy the good folks at Matador Records. But I digress...

Highlights include an especially fiery performance of the Wipers' "Youth of America" and a beautiful rendition of "What We Really Were" that features what might be Bob's most impressive loop ever (a psychedelic, chime-like effect over the bridge -- jaw-dropping).

Now if we can only get the band's most recent show in NYC. I want to hear that cover of Wire's "Dot Dash" post haste.

Subject: good loud rock and punk
I had never heard Mission of Burma's music, but had heard the name before. They were often compared to Fugazi, fIREHOSE, Pennywise, and the loud, strong rock and roll that had lots of punk in it, but were still lyrical and weren't just screaming. When MOB got ok for archive.org, I heard some rumblings of people stoked some punk music was coming. The one show up so far (this one) had streaming m3u files so I gave it a listen today at work. Sound Quality is great. Great recording and no crowd noise. very clean and clear. Show quality is fun, but it just isn't my taste. They sound like Pennywise but with a diffrent vocalist. Good loud punk rock. Strong bass lines, great drumming and all that, it just isn't for me. It is listenable though, rather then some punk bands that just violently scream into the mic with abandon. With this show it was entertaining but I eventually shut it off halfway through the concert. You'll dig it if you like punk rock!
